We are surrounded by symbolism in our everyday lives. Some of these symbols, such as roadsigns and logos, are immediately recognisable at a conscious level. Others are magical and have a deep meaning at a subconscious level.
In this book, Kristyna Pearson traces the history of signs and symbols from their roots to the modern age. She discusses how they have been altered by the progression of civilisation, how psychiatry actively uses symbolism, and the significance of doodles.
